There are ones that are more pinky-red while others have a slight orange tent and there are the deep red colors. It can be overwhelming trying to choose between the hundreds if not thousands of shades of red lipstick around our favorite brands.
And rather than being put off by red lipstick all together because the shade you use doesn’t suit you. Learn which shade of red suits your skin tone best and you will be wanting to wear red lipstick everyday.
Here’s your guide on how to choose the best red lipstick for your skin tone.
1- Pale Skin.
Coral pink is the most suitable for pale skin especially in the summer or if you are going running and when wearing casual outfits.
However blue-toned reds can also bring life to really pale skin and will frame the whole face and will make an attractive contrast in the colors.
The feel red that is blue-toned can also make your teeth look whiter and give you less work to do with your cheeks and eyes.
Another shade that is richer in the red and can bring out the complexion of pale skin is diva red with a slight gloss especially when paired with black eyeliner. It is a classic look but can be very suitable for work and everyday life. The compination is striking on pale skin and can pretty much work for most skin tones.
2- Tanned Complexion.
If you have just been on a vacation and want to bring out your new skin tone and compliment it with red lipstick then the orange-red shade is best for you. The shade will enhance the tan and suit your new look.
Pink toned red lipstick can also work great with tanned complexion, it will look soft and more suitable for work environment especially if you are not a big fan of too bold colors.
There are hundreds of hues that can work great for tanned skin, so the next time you are at the makeup counter and just got yourself tanned, try all the shades you like and see which shade suit your new complexion best.
3- Deep Skin Tones.
It is always amazing to choose red lipstick shade if you have a deep, rich skin tone. Almost all hues can suit your complexion, pop against the skin tone and just look great.
I recommend cherry red for deep skin tones. It works great even if you are having on very little makeup or no makeup you will still look polished. You can never fail with this shade of red because it just can suit any skin tone but especially deep Complexion.
